This doesn't quite fit the Meditation page, but it fits here more than on the SOPW page.

Well, I decided to beef up my programming skills with a little hard-core Comp. Sci. reading. I ran across a set of three books by Donald E. Knuth: 3 volume set of The Art of Computer Programming.

Will it be worth my time reading through these books, or should I stick to more concrete programming books. I am not the most adept at Algorithms, and the Wolf book is a little more Perl-centric than I was really looking for.

Ideas? Comments? Suggestions? I really need to improve on my coding theory so I will not be limited later on.

I posted this in the Chatterbox, and I got two well-formulated responses, so I know there are some good thinkers here.
